Dappy loses appeal against assault conviction

Dappy, along with co-defendants Kieran Vassell and Alfred Miller, lost his appeal against his recent conviction for assault and affray yesterday.

As previously reported, Dappy was found guilty of assault by beating and affray for attacking a man, David Jenkins, who came to the defence of two women after the rapper became involved in an argument with them at a petrol station in Guildford in February last year. Dappy’s defence was that he had simply been trying to promote his new single to the two women when he himself was attacked.

A judge at Guildford Crown Court yesterday ruled that Dappy’s six month suspended sentence, plus 150 hours of community service, was not excessive and rejected his appeal, along with those of the other two men.
